for the majority of my life I have tried to maintain a healthy lifestyle. i’ve eaten clean, exercised regularly, played often in the mountains and in the sun, practiced yoga and meditation, de-stressed with massage or acupuncture, used vitamins, supplements and oils and have maintained a regular, healthy sleep routine.
but, i’ve continuously struggled MOST OF MY LIFE with the auto-immune disease psoriasis and various other frustrating health conditions. I have learned to manage these frustrations, but have been constantly discouraged with the lack of positive change or results regardless of my efforts. the pictures only represent a part of the story. besides having skin that is dry, flaking, and constantly irritated (all over my body), i have regularly experienced extreme muscle fatigue, chronic constipation and digestion issues/bloating, candida and yeast infections, cold sores and dry/cracking lips, dry hair and nails, low energy, mild depression and mood swings, foggy headedness, disorganised thoughts, memory issues, aura migraines, joint deterioration and aching joints, receding gums, and CONSTANTLY dealing with sinus infections, colds, or some sort of sickness…i have literally been sick at least 4 times a year for MY ENTIRE LIFE.
i have seen every type of practitioner you can think of…classical dermatologist, functional medicine doctors, chinese medicine doctors, acupuncturist, energy healers, AND I have tried every type of treatment or home remedy I could find…celery juice, cilantro fasts (yes, it’s a thing), gluten free, meat free, and dairy free diets. I’ve also spent more money than you could imagine on prescription medication, lotions, potions, and even some gimmicks that have grand promises to heal me.
one year ago, out of complete desperation (and with a little support and information to get started from my sister) i decided to jump head first into the “carnivore” or “nose to tail” way of eating.
and this has completely transformed my life. it has taken a lot of experimentation, patience, and mindset shifts…but i believe this way of eating has healed my body from the inside out.
i am truly grateful for all the podcasters, doctors, anthropologist, scientist, health coaches and regular people who have shared their own journeys and dedicated their time to helping others understand that this way of eating is the way we humans have evolved.
not only has my psoriasis healed, but I have found profound improvements in other areas of my health as well: i haven’t been sick at all in the last 12 months (!!!), and all the symptoms I listed above have either completely healed or are at least 95% better and getting better each day. no more digestion issues or bloating, no more foggy headedness, no more muscle fatigue and no more yeast overgrowth. my sleep, focus, and mood have all greatly improved and i rarely have cravings or feel hungry. i feel motivated, energised and overall healthier than i have EVER felt.
here is what I eat daily:
-organic heavy cream
-grass fed beef (fatty steak, roast, or ground beef)
-grass fed beef liver
-wild caught fish (mostly fatty salmon, sometimes tuna, shrimp, or scallops)
-sparkling mineral water
-beef organ supplements
i still have some “cheats” here and there with a carb or veggie, but I have noticed over time that I don’t crave them, want them or need them…and they don’t seem to affect me as negatively as they used to.
I am extremely grateful that I have stumbled across this way of eating and am happy to share my story with anyone who will listen 😉
